Microsoft to add Toronto, Quebec City to its cloud datacenter list

Microsoft will make Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online available from two new local Canadian cloud datacenters in 2016.

Microsoft plans to open two new datacenters in Canada -- one in Toronto and one in Quebec City -- in 2016.

The two new locations will allow Microsoft to deliver Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online locally in Canada, Microsoft officials announced on June 2. General availability of Azure in these regions is slated for early 2016, and Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online "later in 2016."

Microsoft already offers 17 Azure datacenter regions worldwide, including regions in Europe, East and Southeast Asia, Japan, Australia and Brazil.

Microsoft also announced Azure and Office 365 local availability in China via its local Chinese partner 21Vianet.
